Komenda College of Education receives donation of computers.

Komenda College of Education in the Central Region has received a generous donation of forty-one computers from Mr. Mohammed Baakoe in conjunction with his company, DRW. During the donation ceremony on Monday 1st July, 2024, the College’s Principal, Very Reverend Professor Kwesi Nkum Wilson, noted that Mr. Mohammed Baakoe, having recognized the significant role the College is playing in training teachers to boost education in Ghana, agreed to donate the serviced computers from DRW as part of its community investment initiatives.

The Principal explained that the donated computers would enhance the ICT Unit and support teaching and learning at the College, ensuring students graduate with better computer knowledge and skills. While presenting the computers, Mr. Baakoe mentioned his special connection to the College, as his father was once a tutor there.

Reverend Professor Kwesi Nkum Wilson expressed his gratitude to Mr. Baakoe, noting the substantial improvement in the number of computers since his appointment as Principal in 2019, increasing from about 10 to approximately 130. He assured Mr. Mohammed Baakoe that the College would take good care of the donated computers and urged the ICT students to maintain them properly.

Commissioning the computers, the Bishop of the Cape Coast Diocese of the Methodist Church and the Council Chair of the College, Right Reverend Richardson Aboagye Andam, thanked Mr. Baakoe and praised the Principal’s ongoing efforts to develop the College. He highlighted several achievements under the Principal’s administration, including procuring a Principal’s duty car, refurbishing the Home Economics block and ICT Lab, solving the issue of inadequate tables and chairs, and beginning the construction of staff bungalows set to be completed next year. He concluded with a blessing for the Principal and his management team.
The Principal also revealed that in 2021, Mr. Baakoe and DRW, where he serves as an IT Lead, had donated two servers currently used for the college’s Wi-Fi and networking activities.

Founded in 1992 DRW is a technology-driven, diversified trading firm that integrates risk management, research and technology in markets worldwide.
